The colour changes are a result of chemical reactions caused by minerals contained in the lake, which is thought to be triggered by volcanic gas activity.

These stunning pictures were captured by Milosh Kitchovitch from Montreal, Canada, whilst he was travelling through Indonesia.

Milosh said: ‘Even though they didn’t change colour in front of my eyes, it was interesting to see three different craters next to each other with completely different colours.

‘I’ve heard lots about the colour-changing lakes before, so I was really eager to see it for myself.
